    Currently at work i use a Canon Rebel EOS XTI and i love it.

    at home i have a crappy fuji s5200 that is just very sub par when i compare it with my work camera.

    my fiance asked me what kind of camera i wanted for xmas, and i am thinking a canon since i am used to using one daily.

    Does anyone know the difference between the XTI & the XSI?

    Is there any other camera that is on the same level as the XTI, but not gonna break the bank?

    Keep you camera.
    Ask for lenses.
    Take better pictures.

    I'd get a used 40d in that case. I think TurboDude is selling one.

    s5200 cannot change lenses, low mp and it takes forever to take pics with

    the rebel xti is my works camera, i am allowed to take it home with me, but i want one of my own

    20D, 30D, 40D? Are they nikons?

    I guess the better question is what's the price range? I'd suggest buying used as you save money, but some people only buy new.

    Used Canon 30d is around $525, Used 40d's for for around $725. If you can make it happen, I'd go with the 40d.

    i will sell you my 40d with all OEM acessories today for 725 shipped and paypalled.

    PS: IQ is miles ahead of the XTI. Noise at Higher ISO is atleast 2 stops better, and well the AF is light years ahead of the XTI
